've chosen tells us this. president obama has eight days to win this election. mitt romney has nine. because he's betting on a big turn out on election day. listen, romney may be on to something given that in 2008, there were states that then candidate obama lost on election day. but he carried them because of his campaigns early voting strategy. right now polls show that in key states like ohio, president obama leads mitt romney 2:1 or 60% to 30% with early voters. remains to be seen what strategy will seal the deal and who will win this election. but come election day, it will be clear whether the right strategy was galvanize voters early, early, early, or just hope they show up on election day. let's go to our table of experts. we -- look, this is it. 2450es are the final days. this is serious politics. so what's happening here particularly among my strategists. is it about targeting 106 counties, is it about early, early, swing voters, what is the winning strategy? >> what's going on is we have a gruff's race for ohio going on and barack obama and mitt romney are the candidates. we're de
. if he can go day by day and be on the offensive, have obama explaining, have obama try to defend of tax -- fend off attacks. if this race gets turned around, that is when the momentum stops. the key is to stay on the offensive. i think it is highly likely that he can do that. he is the incumbent president because there's a lot more to attack. and there are things happening within his own administration. you saw the e-mails today on an ghazi. -- on benghazi. the aggressive and drive it home, and then ultimately, it is all about turn out an enterprising -- energizing your base. the more you can keep the president on the defensive and look aggressive, if you energize your basic mdot the other thing is that -- you energize your base, and the other thing is that you influence these other voters based on how they feel about things. coming down the stretch, if it feels like mitt romney has the momentum and the aggression, then it swings things that way. if they are not for him out, they probably will not be. they may not vote. but if ron makenna showed that energy -- romney can show that energ
a tight race, romney hopes to keep his momentum going to election day. >> the supporters of the president have this chance, they do four more years, i like ten more days a lot better you know what? [ laughter ] >> reporter: in new hampshire, president barack obama once again heard the four more years. [ people chanting ] and he too talked about ten more days. >> ten days and you'll be stepping into a voting booth, and making is defining choice about the future of our country. >> reporter: new hampshire is the smallest battleground state with just four electoral votes with the way the race is shaping up, those votes could make a difference. >> new hampshire, i still believe in you. i need you to keep believing in me. >> reporter: with hurricane sandy barreling towards the east coast, both have been forced to change their travel schedules. romney scrapped a sunday trip to virginia. and will instead join running mate ryan in ohio. the president has planned to leave monday for florida. that's been moved up to sunday night to beat the storm. drew levinson, cbs news. >>> here in the bay area th
of president obama, who may have over the last several days has basically become a choice between a status quo stagnation of the obama administration and the big change of the romney ryan ticket is promising. watch. >> this is a turning point for america, and we need to take a different course, that we cannot stay on the course we're on. i happen to think that the american people understand we need dramatic and real change if we're going to have a bright and prosperous future for us. >> look, we believe in the principles that built this country. we believe in liberty, freedom, free enterprise, self-determination and government working for us and not the other way around. >> no question that there is growing enthusiasm in the republican events as romney and ryan are crisscrossing the country particularly in the battle ground states. they have now nine days left and they recognize that the ground game is critically important. the storm does threaten that and mr. romney had to reschedule, canceling to virginia to be here in ohio and a series of cascading dominoes, the obama campaign and romney ca
president obama and mitt romney to cancel events in virginia. this is important because with only nine days left until election day, it comes down to math and geography, the votes and the map. the map shrunk to seven swing states, virginia, iowa, new hampshire, wisconsin and ohio are all in play this cycle. president obama can count on 243 electoral votes that will go blue and romney can count on 106. with each having to get to 270 to win. the simple take away is the president's path to victory is significantly easier. polls show barack obama consistently ahead in iowa and wisconsin. if he holds on there, he won both last time, he just needs to win florida, ohio or virginia. he's behind in florida and a dead heat in virginia. he seems to be ahead in ohio. it's why the candidates are spending so much time in that state. obama has a 73.6% chance of winning. it's hard to imagine a romney victory without winning ohio. okay. everybody is in ohio. it's such a bizarre undertaking to go through the map and everyone now has these nice interactive things. is that your sense of the race? my sense of t
